romney pays in his income tax. >> reporter: before the debate, cnn was told paul ryan's team anticipated biden to be aggressive where the president was not especially on the infamous 47%. >> romney is a good man. with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> biden's recovery plan for a demoralized dechl democratic base was not just in what he said, but what he did. >> in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. biden jumped in constantly. >> that didn't happen. >> nobody is -- >> mr. vice president. >> the president was slammed for nodding as romney spoke. >> biden used the split screen to give a running commentary of disapproval with his facial expressions. >> ryan had a zinger ready for all that, too. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> for 90 minutes voters saw two dramatically different visions. >> for the economy. >> the last
